Two more cases of child pornography were investigated by the Cybercrime Prosecution Directorate.
A national was arrested for the cases and a regular procedure case was filed against another national.
The Cybercrime Prosecution Directorate filed two lawsuits, one of a spontaneous procedure - of a criminal nature - and the second of a regular procedure, against an equal number of locals, for child pornography.
In particular, the investigation of the first case started after a complaint from the mother of a minor, according to which an unknown perpetrator, during an internet conversation, extracted from her daughter, sensitive material (photos and videos) which, after sending to the father of the minor, demanded this amount of money so that he does not share it further.
The above were brought to the attention of the Prosecutor's Office and a relevant order was issued, while after correspondence with the internet service providers involved and a police investigation, the details of the local were identified and his place of residence on an island in the Cyclades emerged.
Subsequently, teams of police officers of the Cybercrime Prosecution Directorate, with the assistance of police officers of the local Security Department, conducted a search at the home of the person involved, where a total of 2 computer hard drives and a mobile phone were found and confiscated.
The on-site investigation in the digital evidence identified his involvement in the case under investigation and a number of files were identified (videos and photos), which, among other things, depicted the minor victim, an act for which he was arrested.
In the second case, after utilizing information received from foreign authorities, digital analysis and a thorough internet search, an internet user was located within the Greek territory, who, using specific electronic tracks, gained access to various websites with child pornography material.
The above were brought to the attention of the Public Prosecutor's Office and a relevant committee was issued to lift the secrecy of communications.
In this context and following correspondence with the internet service providers involved, the details of the subscriber and the place of residence of the second citizen on an island in the Cyclades were identified.
Subsequently, a team of police officers from the Cybercrime Prosecution Directorate, with the assistance of police officers from the local Security Department, conducted a search of his home, where two computer hard drives were found and confiscated.
An on-the-spot investigation carried out on the digital evidence confirmed his involvement in the case, but he was not arrested as the conditions for a spontaneous procedure were not met.
The confiscated digital evidence of both cases will be sent to the Directorate of Criminological Investigations for laboratory examination.
The arrested person, with the case file against him, was taken to the competent Prosecutor and referred to an investigator, while the regular procedure case file was submitted to the competent Prosecutor's Office.
